Ubuntu's Lucid Lynx has the special 3 years lasting long term support for which many users have been waiting. Some people use these LTS versions only. Additionally this will probably be the last Ubuntu distro with the current Gnome user interface (series 2.x) to which people are accustomed.
This appliance has VMware Tools installed out of the box. Here is the one without VMware Tools. There are pros and cons for both. If the tools are already installed, you don't have to do it and assure that they are installed correctly. This image is tested and especially disk shrinking works now. On the other hand, if you plan to update often, it may become necessary to reinstall VMware Tools every time. In that case it may pay off to do without the tools.

Ubuntu 10.04 appliance with long term support

Every two years Ubuntu comes out with a long term supported release and now it is there. This one will be the last Ubuntu with the Gnome 2.x series and its calm and user friendly interface that many people value. Let's see whether Gnome will surprise everyone with its new 3.0 desktop environment or the Gnome team will be surprised because nobody likes it. So far, I think, we can be glad that this LTS version of Ubuntu offers still the accustomed Gnome style.
We also have a new Ubuntu 10.04 appliance with preinstalled VMware Tools. However, in order to keep the changes to the original minimal and the download small, this one is pure. Especially for a long term supported appliance this has also the advantage that it is better updatable. Often the VMware Tools do not work anymore fully after updating multiple times. But if you need shared folders or the other guest system integration features, this appliance can install the current VMware Tools of Workstation 7.0.1 without any compilation glitch.
Please use the torrent file for your download. This is Ubuntu and especially the LTS version puts an enormous bandwidth burden on our server.
